Tim Alderson Named EL Pitcher of the Week; Four in a Row for Pirates

Altoona Curve pitcher Tim Alderson was named the Eastern League Pitcher-of-the-Week today after going 2-0 with 10 strikeouts and a 0.69 ERA.  Alderson was acquired for Freddy Sanchez from the San Francisco Giants last season.

Calvin Anderson the first baseman at Bradenton captured the Florida State League Player-of-the-Week honors by going 14-for-26 with two doubles, a dong and eight RBI.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have now had a pitcher named the winner of minor league Pitcher-of-the-Week awards for four straight weeks.  Perhaps I should get excited about our pitching?
